ANTH 3100 - Globalization and Cultural Identity

Hours: 4
Increasingly, we define the economic, cultural, and political changes of the contemporary moment under the concept of “globalization.” As new media and technologies collapse space and compress time, we become entangled with others in new and constantly changing ways. While many analysts of globalization look at macro-level processes of economic restructuring and political re-organization, this course examines the experience of globalization as it implodes onto everyday life and structures particular cultural identities. Rather than understanding “culture” as a static or pre-existing condition that is broken down by globalization, we will approach cultural practices and ethnic identities as fluid and contested.
